EVALUATION OF IN-VITRO ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTICANCER ACTIVITY OF MONOCHORIA VAGINALIS LEAVES ON Hep2 AND HeLa CELL LINES
The entire plant (Monochoria vaginalis (Burm. f.) C. Presl.) except root is being used as a vegetable and has been used in traditional Indian system of medication for treating various diseases. But there are not many scientific data on the antioxidant and anticancer activity of M. vaginalis. Therefore, we aimed to determine the in-vitro antioxidant and anticancer activity of methanolic extract of ...
VALIDATION OF CLEANING PROCEDURE FOR ELIMINATION OF OFLOXACIN AND METRONIDAZOLE BENZOATE FROM MIXING EQUIPMENT BY USING UV SPECTROSCOPY
This research manuscript describes simple, sensitive, accurate, precise and repeatable UV spectroscopic method for the simultaneous determination of Metronidazole (MET) and Ofloxacin (OFL) in suspension dosage form). Metronidazole has absorbance maxima at 318.0 nm and Ofloxacin has absorbance maxima at 294 nm in Methanol and Water (50:50) solvent. The linearity was obtained in the concentration ra...
The scenario of pharmaceutical drug delivery are expeditiously challenging, but conventional pharmaceutical dosage forms are still dominating. Immediate release dosage forms are those wherein ≥85% of labeled amount dissolves within 30 min. Superdisintegrants are used to improve the efficacy of solid dosage forms. The basic approach used in the formulation of the tablet is the use of superdisinte...
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a micro vascular disorder affecting the retina of the eye. Many genes have been identified for its pathogenesis. Endoglin (ENG) is one of the candidate gene involved in DR. Several literature studies helped us understand that the in vitro and in vivo studies of these candidate genes had demonstrated the role of a new gene called endoglin (ENG) capable of inhibiting ang...
QUALITY CONTROL, CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF SOME MARKETED PEPPERMINT OIL SAMPLES
This work aimed to evaluate the quality of some commercial peppermint oil products available in the Egyptian market. Also, analysis of peppermint oil extracted from Mentha piperita L. leaves marketed in Egypt. Thus, quality control of both herb extracted and purchased oil products. Essential oils were analyzed using GC/MS, and the main ingredients of each peppermint oil sample were quantified. The...
INFLUENCE OF LEVETIRACETAM ON AGGRAVATION OF MEMORY IMPAIRMENT BY VALPROATE: A STUDY ON PILOCARPINE MOUSE MODEL OF TEMPORAL LOBE EPILEPSY
Association of memory impairment (MI) with epilepsy, majorly in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is considerably a tricky condition where existing treatment options involving the administration of anti-epileptic drugs (AED’s) tend to worsen the stated incidence. This study evaluates the aggravating effect of valproate (VAL) at normal and reduced doses on MI associated with TLE and additionally asses...
This study aims to evaluate the in-vitro and in-vivo antioxidant activity of different extracts prepared from the aerial parts of Arthrophytum scoparium. Polyphenols flavonoids and tannins contents were determined. The acute toxicity of ASE was carried out based on OECD during two weeks to ascertain the LD50. In sub-acute toxicity, a 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg/day extract was orally administrated for ...
IN VITRO ANTILEISHMANIAL ACTIVITY AND GC-MS ANALYSIS OF ETHYLACETATE FRACTION OF ALLIUM CEPA (EAFAC)
In this study, GC-MS analysis shown that ethyl acetate fraction of Allium cepa (EAFAC) (band one) consists of 55 compounds which shown antileishmanial activity. (IC50 73.1 ± 2.1 ug/ml) is the inhibitory concentration which is observed for ethyl acetate fraction of Allium cepa (EAFAC) (band one). Leishmania major is the specie used for this leishmanicidal assay. In this bioassay, Amphotericin B (I...
A REVIEW ON ETIOLOGY AND CHALLENGES ASSOCIATED WITH VARIOUS THERAPIES FOR THE TREATMENT OF PSORIASIS
Psoriasis is autoimmune, hyperproliferative skin disease, which is affecting 2-5% of the population. Etiology of psoriasis is multi-factorial. The disease is identified as periodic recycle of events with red-scaly skin plaques. The epidemiology of Psoriasis is still unknown. From medication, this disease can only be prevented. Currently, there are many approaches to cure this disease, but still, n...
TLC BIOAUTOGRAPHY AND LCMS-MS ANALYSIS FOR IDENTIFICATION OF COMPOUNDS HAVING INHIBITORY ACTIVITY AGAINST STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS IN ABIES WEBBIANA LEAVES EXTRACT
